It is a one-to-one match between Republican presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Ron Paul in Maine. The state, which is holding a more-than-a-day caucusing, has 24 delegates to offer. Romney, who had won the state in 2008 Republican primaries, is hoping to repeat the same in 2012. While Texas Congressman Paul, is looking for his first victory.

The caucuses are being held in several small counties in the state between Jan. 29 and March 3 though the GOP had encouraged the municipal committees to conduct the caucus from Feb. 4 to Feb.11. The caucusing will end officially by Saturday evening and the results based on a non-binding presidential straw poll will be announced by the state’s Republican Party after 7.30 p.m. Saturday.

The contest is directly between Romney and Paul in Maine as none of the other GOP candidates have the organization to campaign here. Both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum did not campaign actively in the state.

Although Maine is a smaller state and has fewer delegates, a convincing victory here is a must for Romney, who is struggling to get his lost ground back after his humiliating defeat to Santorum in the last three GOP state polls. A victory here can help him win back his top frontrunner status, whereas Paul who, has campaigned here extensively, needs a victory to keep his candidacy afloat in the race.
